Hi - thanks for all of everyone's work...
1) are we publishing the correct result for round one 'publicly', i.e.,
posting, or only making it okay to discuss with constituency members. I
thought we were not publishing results until the end of the voting for
slot; as opposed to the rounds. My comments at the end of the draft
statement go into that.
If I'm correct in my thinking, then suggest that the last sentence be
changed to say that the 'Names Council has addressed and resolved the
correctly and is now proceeding with the elections'. Or something to
2) in an article I received today there was reference to the voting. I
thought the last sentence was nicely phrased, referring to the delay in
elections. I just mention it here as it is a good way of stating it, and
may want to paraphrase if appropriate:
"The results of that race were due tomorrow, but the election will not

Here is my (rushed) attempt to draft a simple statement for release
with the verified round one vote. We already know from our
teleconference that one vote was not truly and correctly recorded -
and I am assuming that all other votes will be verified as correct.
Statement to be published after the re-count of the first round votes in
the Names Council election of the third (one year term) ICANN Board
During the Names Council election for the third ICANN Board member, a
member of the Names Council requested that the first round of votes be
reviewed to determine whether the votes AS cast WERE [delete had been
correctly recorded. The Names Council reviewed the situation, and
[delete decided to ask] REQUESTED the DNSO Secretariat to verify EACH
COUNCIL MEMBERS RESPECTIVE VOTE FOR ROUND ONE WITH THAT NAMES COUNCIL
[delete the votes with each Names
Council member]. As a result of this verification process, one of the
Names Council members confirmed that the vote they had cast had NOT
been truly and correctly recorded, and identified their correct vote.
ERROR IN RECORDING HAS BEEN CORRECTED, AND THE NAMES COUNCIL WILL NOW BE
PROCEEDING WITH ROUND 2.
[delete... The correct result for round one of the election of the third
member is as follows] - (I assume we're not publishing the results of
1? Or are we - and if so, is this statement to go out - e.g., available
the press, or is it only for within constituencies - where is the line?
